Colossal Vail 50/50

Trail Run

presented by Fleet Feet Tucson

December 9, 2023

The Colossal Vail 50/50 is an adventurous ultra run on portions of the Arizona Trail near the community of Vail (24 miles southeast of Tucson). Starting and finishing at Colossal Cave Mountain Park, both the 55K and 50-mile courses feature some of the greatest high desert trail running opportunities in this part of the state. There’s also a spicy half-marathon distance in the morning, and a nighttime half-marathon — runners can do both for a full trail marathon (with a nice long break in the middle of the day).
